Frequently Asked Questions
1. When should you get your piano tuned?
To stabilize its frequency, a new piano requires three annual tunings, for the first two years; thereafter at least twice a year.
2. Is there a good time of year to get your piano tuned?
No. Contrary to popular myth, this work can be done at any time of the year without affecting its quality.
3. What happens if I forget to tune my piano?
Delaying the tuning of a piano for too long causes the tone of the instrument and the tension of the strings to drop. The soundboard deforms, which can lead to cracks that are difficult to repair. It is therefore advantageous to regularly maintain your instrument, this will ensure better performance and greater durability.
4. What is the importance of good regulation?
Regulation is as important as tuning. It is important to know that it is possible to restore your piano’s original performance, as it is done with precise proportions and measurements. It prevents breakage that can lead to costly repairs and gives you all the sensitivity you need for a precise and nuanced touch.
5. What is the FATPQ?
It is the acronym for the Fraternité des accorddeurs et techniciens de piano du Québec (Brotherhood of Piano Tuners and Technicians of Quebec). Founded in 1964, this organization brought together tuners, technicians and piano tuner-technicians. Although the association ceased its activities in 2014, many of its members are still active in this field.
